Hakonechloa reverting?

LisaLisa2(z6 NY)June 7, 2005

I've had Hakonechloa macro "Auriola" for about 2 years now. It's variaged but just this year I've noticed all green blades coming up around the edges of it. Is this a hybrid that is reverting back to its old color? Should I remove these blades?

I think it's a common occurrence with this grass. The contrast is awfully nice to my eye.
You can't leave it there forever as the phytosynthetic virility of the all-green parts of the clump will eventually take over. But you could certainly enjoy the combination for a season or two or just immediately dig those parts up. Give them away to a gardening friend or start a drift elsewhere in your yard.
At any rate - enjoy!
